In our lab testing, we are able to reliably reach 3-5 Gbps results from speedtest.net. You may obtain better results over time due to improvements in hardware/software. Keep in mind, some speed test sites have limitations on this type of offering and may not be able to test speeds this high.
In order to connect to the UTOPIA Fiber network, you will need to provide the following:
- An OM3 or OM4 grade Multimode Duplex LC Jumper to connect between your equipment and our switch.
- An OM3/4 cable will typically have an aqua colored jacket.
- This can be purchased from: https://www.fs.com/products/41736.html
- OM1 grade jumpers can’t be used for the connection. OM1 jumpers typically have an orange colored jacket.
- You will need to supply a 10GBase-SR optic for your equipment.
- 10GBASE-T connections are not available for this product.
- A switch/router capable of accepting a 10G connection.
No, you will need to provide your own.
ASUS has just come out with a consumer router with dual 10G ports. You can purchase this router on Amazon here.
Most consumer grade routers available only support 1 Gbps connections. You will not be able to achieve multiple gigabit per second throughput over a wireless network on these routers.
A good basic configuration is to have a 10 Gbps capable router accept the 10 Gbps connection and provide NAT service to multiple 1 Gbps connected devices. Click here for more information.
